Just a quick update:
My trip to Venezuela fell through due to exogenous reasons. I had to plan another trip, as I didn’t want to spend my vacation in Toronto – I decided on Kiev.
Kiev is a popular spot among Western men, and while there are a lot of opinions out there circulating about it, I wanted to do my own research.
I booked my flight last week, and spent the next few days deciding on where I want to stay. I ended up picking an apartment five minutes away from Independence Square, a logistically strategic point. There are several bars nearby, as well as restaurants and supermarkets. As well, it’s located close to a taxi station that just happened to be located a five-minute walk from where I am staying.
